Lord God,

You alone are the source of every good gift,
of the vast array of our universe,
and the mystery of each human life.
We praise You and we thank You for Your great power
and Your tender, faithful love.

Everything we are and everything we have is Your gift,
and after having created us,
You have given us into the keeping of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Fill our minds with His truth and our hearts with His love,
that in His Spirit we may be bonded together
into a communion of faith,
a parish family, a caring people.

In the Name and Spirit of Jesus, we commit ourselves
to be good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us,
to share our time, our talent, and our material gifts
as an outward sign of the treasure we hold in Jesus.

Dear Jesus,

I thank You for everything You have given me.
My gifts of time and talents are precious gifts.
Enable me to use them to do Your will.

I offer You this day all my words, actions, and good intentions
to reflect my love for You and my neighbor.
Please help me realize that I need to share these gifts
and all my gifts with the Church and others.
Help me to be generous, patient, forgiving, and holy.

Creator God,

At Baptism, we accepted the call to follow Jesus.
Be with us as we move along on our faith journey.
Send us Your Holy Spirit,
that we might have wisdom for the journey.

Help us develop and share our gifts as good stewards,
that we may use them
in love and service in Your kingdom.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
